From the Head Teacher,
Mrs Nicola Berry
Welcome to St John’s Mead CEVC Primary website, we hope you enjoy finding out about our school. We are fortunate in having a primary school with 11 classes and a nursery class that takes children from the age of 3; all located in wonderful, spacious grounds in the popular market town of Chipping Sodbury. Our school achieves high academic results and yet we pride ourselves on focusing upon the whole child, recognising the need for creativity; children to consider themselves learners and members of the whole society.
St John’s Mead is a vibrant learning community where all our members strive to make the school the best that it can be. We have strong links with the local church and our dedicated PTA ensures events throughout the year provide opportunities to enjoy each others’ company and raise additional funds for the school. We also take safe guarding children extremely seriously and precautions are in place to ensure that our children are safe ranging from the physical environment to stringent recruitment procedures.
To find out more about our school have a look at the latest PTA and news items, read the current school council minutes or peruse the newsletters. Nothing however beats visiting in person to see if this school feels the right one for your child. We are very proud of our school and visitors are always welcome; contact Hannah or Anne in the office to arrange a convenient time.
